    I just can't stand the combat in EVE, so that solves the problem for me. ;)

    I like trading and exploring. I dislike when a game is all about this or that. In EVE in particular I tend to mine and whatnot in order to build things. I enjoy that. In the X games, I tend to build up a trading/manufacturing empire.

    I totally get what you're saying about the living world. We really need more space mmos that aren't quite as … EVE-like.

      Heh, combat in EVE is meh, but it's passable. I personally found the X games so damned focused on economy that I found no fun in them. Didn't help that the universes felt so…bland and empty.

      Jumpgate did a great job with this sort of thing, but sadly it's not really worth playing anymore. :( Sad, as that's probably the game I've played more than any other.

    I'm of the same mind, if the game only offers combat (like S.P.A.Z.) I'm happy with the fighting, but if there are other roles I like to explore them as much as possible.

    As to future ship life, sign me up for the science / survey corp. We'll probably need you mercs to pull our chestnuts out of the fire from time to time, but nothing beats first contact. :D

    totaly true…when you have a mmo, you need more than battles to make it fun. for example…BSG online…it's a fun game…but don't have a economy, trade etc…
    you take a few objetives to do, mining, battle and finish…
    it's a waste of game.

    Have to agree with everyone regarding Eve combat, now if the combat was more like x-wing or elite even then maybe it would be a different story. But my experience with Eve when I played it was mining and running errands. Combat in eve was just not a fun or rewarding option for me. I'm still dreaming about an Elite type MMO with that style of combat but alas I feel maybe these days that kind of universe would feel baron as back in the 80s we used imagination to fill in a lot of the voids, something the newer generation of gamers has never really needed to do. I'll just carry on daydreaming… :-)

    you should try Space Merchant Realms, http://smrealms.de/login.php or Core exiles, http://www.core-exiles.com/ .

    • Brian Rubin says:

      Space Merchant Realms is already on the list. I see Core Exiles is in beta, so I'll add it to my separate development list. Thanks! :)

    I haven't undocked in eve for the past few months. This game has become all about trading and accumalating wealth for me. Who needs pvp.
